Through Violet Cusps: a personal selection of full adventures and background articles for DERPG by Ian Thomson. Most are free pdf downloads!


And you can find additional material on our Page XX website. Let us know what you think about our downloads in the forum.

 Character sheets created by Ian Thomson: the NEW Rhialto-Level sheet; Cugel-Level front page v1; Cugel-Level front page v2; Turjan-Level front page; a universal back page; an extra (third) page for magicians. OR all (save Rhialto) in one batch (zipped pdfs).


In order to save hardworking GMs some time, we also present several Cugel-Level sheets with greyscale character pictures already in place. These require printing on a machine of reasonable quality to show in their full glory: Ch’sainth; Ecnomander; Gorbinesse; Jozenda; Kurnio; and Palandro.
